Among the Ashes
I've been looking in the mirror for so long
That I've come to believe my souls on the other side
The little pieces falling, shatter
Shards of me
Too sharp to put back together
To small to matter
But big enough to cut me into so many little pieces
If I try to touch her
And I bleed
And I breathe
I breathe no more
~Evanescence "Breathe No More"
"This is exactly what they want, you know," Link said as they dismounted and unpacked some food. By dawn they were far from Bellek and both in need of some rest. "They're looking for you, and you're asking me to let you go walking right into their hands." Link looked at her with genuine concern.
"No, I'm asking you to walk right into their hands with me," Zelda replied with a wry smile. "If something's wrong in Hyrule, with my father, we have to go back. What other choice do we have?"
"We have to go back," Link agreed resolutely. Neither of them was eager to return to Hyrule, but knew that they could never tur

Marth led Zelda to one of the tallest, most secluded towers in the castle. He walked to the parapets and stood silently for a moment, thinking about what he would say. In the distance he could see the ocean, shimmering of deep blue. The moonlight caught each ripple of the waves as they rolled onto the shore, the white foam gleaming like silver in the night. Ever so faintly he could hear the sound of the waves rolling in and dashing back out in their gentle, beautiful rhythm.
When he did turn to her, however, he wasn't expecting to see what he did. Though her face was impassive and her eyes calm, tears were running down her cheeks.
"What's wrong?" he asked her, putting a hand on her shoulder.
"I don't know," she replied calmly, though the tears continued to fall. "I've never seen the ocean before. It's… it's beautiful," she said softly, her voice s

The sun had all but set over the vast grassy plain. The only sound was that of crickets chirping melodically in the distance. A quiet hush had settled over the village of Kadden: a lone beacon of civilization nestled in the middle of a sea of long, silken grass. The last rays of light were fading from the rooftops. The shadows of the little buildings were lengthening and then vanishing into the darkness. The streets of the town were slowly emptying as most of its inhabitants headed for home fo

Believe me, believe me, I can't tell you why
But I'm trapped by your love, and I'm chained to your side
We are young, heartache to heartache we stand

"Marth!" Zelda fought her way through the crowds, trying to glimpse him through the chaos. "Marth!"
Now that the Sages had been subdued Marth's army seemed to be congregating in one spot. All fighting had seemed to cease, but every soldier was pushing and vying to get to a particular location.
Zelda had seen the man in green, 'Link', attack Marth. This had to be where the soldiers were fleeing.

Despite the long journey, the harsh weather, and miserable feeling which had settled over them all, far too soon for Zelda's liking the trail began to curve back northward, and she found herself facing a straightforward course for the castle.
"This is it," Impa said as the company slowed to a stop. "Thank you for coming with us this far."
Link looked around unexpectedly to see Ruto, Nabooru, Saria and Darunia hanging back from the fork in the road.
"Are you sure you don't need us any longer?" Nabooru asked, though she looked particularly harried by the rain. It was no wonder- the desert lands of the west never got so cold and wet. It was a tribute to Nabooru's strength that she had made the whole journey without complaint.
"I'm sure Link and I can escort the Princess safely from here," Impa replied.
The Sages took turns bidding the Princess and Link farewell, thanking each other profusely and all assuring they

In a burst of light Link materialized in the cavernous antechamber of the Temple of Time. The instant his feet hit the floor he was off and running. His mind was so focused on the task at hand he didn't even notice he wasn't alone.
"You there!" Link turned his head with a start as he heard a voice scream at him. It was an imperial soldier, brandishing a blade and moving towards Link threateningly. "You are not allowed here, the entire city is under- hey! It's you!" the soldier's eyes grew wide with recognition and he tensed even more. "You have been banished! You are under arrest, by order of the-"
BAM! Link's fist hit the soldier's cheek without warning and the soldier toppled to the floor with a loud, echoing thud. Still completely single-minded, Link immediate

With an echoing clang of ringing metal the Master Sword slipped from Zelda's fingers and fell to the ground. An all encompassing silence has settled over the chaos of the battlefield.
Zelda looked down at what she had done: at Ganondorf's lifeless body lying before her. She couldn't look away. Unable to move, she simply stared at the carnage before her.

The city of Lumiose was filled with laughter and smiles. The people talked and chatted about. The Pokémon scampered and smiled with glee. The sun brightened lively upon the citizens below. White clouds drifted lazily on the clear blue skies, a few Flecthlings past by now and then with precious squawks echoing from their little beaks.
Yes. Lumiose City was truly a city of grandeur, yet still revealing its traditional beauty for the world to see. It was a peaceful, normal morning. Nothing was suspicious. Nothing was out of the ordinary. Everyone was at ease with their own lives.
Some jumped at the loud scream. Some even expelled their own screams. Loud tapping sounds shook the ground below their feet. Younger children and baby Pokémon almost tripped from the small tremor, most of them clinging on their parents for protection. A few people and Pokémon turned and searched for the cause of the sudden noise.

That single word haunted his mind ever since they’d left. That single word enraptured his brain, tangling it with memories that shouldn’t exist. The torn photo was gripped in his hand, fingers unwarily clutching the piece as if he was clutching his own, tattered heart.
He saw her face, her smile. He saw her hope that brimmed inside the picture. Her smile was so beautiful, that he would never lie – not even to himself. Her cheeks were rosy red in the picture, giving a natural shade due to the event. She looked as if she was glowing, her expression radiant to an extent where joy could actually be defined by her.
But sadly, he knew: that joy was now no longer for him. No. The smile on her face would never be seen to ease his irrational nerves. The sound of her laugh would never be heard to soothe his isolated heart. The sweetness of her voice would never be tasted to calm his unwanted anxiety.

The slightest touch disintegrates it,

And becoming too much to clean
I feel like that.
Have you ever broken a glass jar,
Just enough to see the shatter-lines,
But it still retains its shape?
The slightest touch will destroy it,
Causing it to release glimmering daggers,
Waiting to be stepped on for their revenge

Have you ever touched a frozen layer of water,
Tried to lift it from the bowl,
Tried to keep it from breaking it's original crystal form?
The slightest touch will erase your reflection,
And you will be left with two shards of melting depression,
That will freeze your blood, and scar your mentality

Of being close enough to the edge
To look but never go down
I'm just so tired of holding myself together

He clutched his side, shook with pain,
And held back the demon of his skin….
From behind a tombs still door,

Her skin rippling like the sea…
She gritted her sharpened teeth,
Found her way to his trembling form,

She shared his pain,
They shared the load,
Both held their torso's and bit back tears,
And collapsed in the falling rain….

Lips paler than the most tired bleached rose.

Her skin prickled with anticipation,
I am naught but a husk,
Barely standing from fatigue,
How strange and dead I do appear,
In these golden shadows.

Ronin: *narrating* A couple nights a go, I ran into a couple of college jocks buying designer roids. When one of them took the drug, it had a reaction I never saw before. Tests showed that some of the components is made by a supplement and fitness country run by Jacob Hercule; who I met at his gym. He offered to make me stronger...and after I ran into that creature last night....
We come into the present, Joseph and Hercule enter Hercule's office
Ronin: *narrating* I need to be stronger.
Hercule: I cannot deny it's been difficult getting to this point, science brings out the mindful and those seeking an opportunity
Joseph looks at the office. It's part executive suite, part high class gym, part lab.
Hercule: First things first, we need to analyze you.
He takes out a syringe
Hercule: You don't mind needles do you?
Hercule takes a sample of Joseph's blood.

Mr. Sandman, Send Me A DreamThere is a realm outside reality, where your wildest imaginations and your darkest nightmares live. Here there be two feuding brothers, and their gargoyles, a sentient meadow known as Fiddler's Green, a loyal butler, a wisecracking raven, and more.Mr. Sandman, Send Me A Dream in General Fiction More Like This
In the center of this realm, behind gates of horn and ivory, stands a beautiful castle made of the purest dream-stuff. Imagine a much grander, and far more gothic, Cinderella's Castle.
And in the ornate throne room sits the realm's master. His hair and robe are dark as night, and his eyes are filled with stars. Around his neck is a chain with a massive ruby. Attached to his belt is a bag filled with magical sand. And perched on an armrest is a weird shaped helm that is a cross between a hummingbird and a gas mask.
His name is Morpheus, or Dream.
Others simply call him "The Sandman".
Nearby were seven niches, each with a symbol for his siblings and himself. They are the Endless, aspects of the universe such as Destiny, Desire, Destruction, an
ToonZ - The Gift of Christmas chp 11Mickey did not object to Bugs’ idea. His children were eager to meet the state’s most popular cartoon band, and Ashton was already talking about the triplets before they had even reached Bugs’ car in the parking lot. It had been a very long time since he had seen Warner Brothers’ rabbit this excited about something.ToonZ - The Gift of Christmas chp 11 in General Fiction More Like This
The one thing Mickey admired about Bugs was that he knew how to make connections—something the mouse had to stop doing on account that the company did it for his own sake, much to his chagrin at times.
The drive was nearly two hours and a quarter. The headquarters for Bagdasarian Productions was up in Montecito, so thankfully Bugs had several things for the kids to do during the drive—apparently, it was not the first time that he took long trips with Ashton. They sang songs and counted passing cars. Bugs drove in silence due to his eagerness and determination to get through traffic to their destination. When he was on the trail of a solut
ToonZ - AnchorThe day had been long for Oswald, and the first time he had taken on the task of “running” the Disney Studios without any help. Neither Roy nor Diane lent a hand, though he thought that that was for the best; after the disagreement the two had had at the studios that morning, Oswald was too afraid to ask for their assistance.ToonZ - Anchor in General Fiction More Like This
Mickey had not been seen since the moment he ran off. October 2006 had marked the third month after his youngest son’s birth, and after a two week break, a break which he and Minnie used to regain their strength from the ordeal, the mouse had slowly gotten back into the busy schedule he was so used to at the studios.
Oswald had been his “assistant” since his return in February, and August was the first time he had to rely on Roy E. Disney’s help to go through Mickey’s usual schedule on the days Mickey needed a break. He was used to running Wasteland; but running the Walt Disney Studios was something else all together.
ToonZ - The Gift of Christmas chp 22Because the ducks had not arrived with the gifts yet, Bugs and Mickey were encouraged by their wives to take the time to relax and listen to the chipmunks as they practiced. Hot chocolate in hand, after chatting with Minnie and Lola in the kitchen, they went to sit in the living room, where Alvin, Simon and Theodore were singing. They sang in A cappella, hoping to fill in their instruments with voices, and after the third try, Morty and Ferdie slapped their thighs to give them a better sense of the rhythm.ToonZ - The Gift of Christmas chp 22 in General Fiction More Like This
Only once did Mickey stop them to correct a note or two, but for the most part, the mouse swung his feet and his head to the singing. Bugs was able to tell how successful their project would be by the way Mickey’s childlike innocence made him react to the song—when the rehearsing was through, he clapped and asked for an encore.
If Mickey wants to hear it again after the umpteenth time, Bugs thought as the Chipmunks began again, then that means that it’ll a

Daffy looked up from his 50-page script with little to no interest as the rabbit walking next to him flipped through the pages of his, frustration stamped over his face. It was a rare occurrence to see Bugs Bunny upset about something. He was the one in control of every situation Warner Brothers dished out at him. He was the one who let everything negative slide with a shrug of his shoulders and a chomp in a carrot. Daffy was the complainer.
But if there was anyone who knew Bugs better than anyone, even the studios’ director, it was Daffy Duck. After decades of working with each other, Daffy was the only one who knew every little thing that irritated the hare. And if there was one thing he knew that bothered Bugs more than anything, it was—
“Another scripted episode!” Bugs exclaimed, waving the pack of papers before him. “Dat’s the thoid one dis month!”
Daffy rolled his eyes before
ToonZ - A Different Kind of Magic chp1It was like any other day at the Disney Studios for Oswald Rabbit: humans running around, getting things done, creators talking about scenes with their teams and Toons, toons waiting to be told what to do. Being Mickey’s assistant was a crazy job, especially when it came to keeping count of everything, but it was worth it in the end. Since 2006 or so, it had been a norm for Oswald. The upside was that he was welcomed into the craziness of the giant Toon Family, and thankfully, despite his attitude at times, everyone still loved having him.ToonZ - A Different Kind of Magic chp1 in General Fiction More Like This
Mickey in particular. On days such as this one, the mouse tended to have more than he could chew on, therefore having Oswald there to assist was always a good thing—it gave him less to worry about... at least while hanging around the Television Animation buildings. For a few years now, Mickey and his crew had settled into the TVA buildings around Burbank and Glendale, mostly due to the fact that they showed their presence more on te
ToonZ - The Gift of Christmas chp 13Nearing the end of the afternoon, the gang had been able to finish taking the set down and setting it aside. The children were not pleased with having to do more work, but the optimism of the Seville Brothers kept their spirits up and made the heavy work easier to bear. They broke into song at one point, and when Bugs went to alert his manager of the changes in the project, he could hear everyone, the chipmunks, the children, even Mickey and Pluto, singing various Christmas songs together as though there were no such thing as boundaries between age and company. The rabbit was glad to know that Alvin had been able to get along with Mickey faster than he had been able to with Bugs, despite still holding a grudge against their companies.ToonZ - The Gift of Christmas chp 13 in General Fiction More Like This

None of the Looney Tunes came in to work—not even Porky Pig, who was known for being the most reliable when showing up at the studios. The director figured that they were all taking a few days off due to the heated argument they had had, and thought it was best not to ask them to come in.ToonZ - The Gift of Christmas chp 9 in General Fiction More Like This
Bugs did not want to get up the next morning. He asked Lola to take Ashton to school because he was afraid that, showing up, any of the other parents of the Looney Kids would notice him and shoot more dirty glares. He was too ashamed, too afraid to face them yet.
So Lola did the driving without question.
The day would have gone by in a gloomy manner, had Lola not taken the day off to spend it wrapping gifts with her husband. She chattered away about her work, to which she was certain Bugs would butt in at some point to tell her to take a breather. If there was any way to get her husband chatti
ToonZ - The Gift of Christmas chp 20By the time Bugs and Mickey had completed the business deal with Scrooge, the children and the Duck triplets had been able to make a list of toys for the children at the hospital. The list was long and had to still go by the owner of the toy factories; Scrooge made his own personal adjustments to the list when his nephews showed it to him. Surprisingly, there were a lot of toys he crossed off due to not being hospital friendly.ToonZ - The Gift of Christmas chp 20 in General Fiction More Like This
“Too sharp; too bland; too—what in Scotland is that?” Scrooge scoffed as he scribbled over the toy images he did not like. Coming to an oddly shaped one, he raised his head and looked at Huey—the triplets, Bugs and Mickey were huddled around the table in the fireplace room while the children and the Chipmunks played some card games to pass the time.
Huey pointed at the toy. “It’s one of them new things,” he said. “Totally in—!”

As though I could run a hundred miles.
